Home School Water Polo Program

There are many reasons to join a sports team. Joining any athletic team is beneficial to the development of social skills, realizing the value of hard work, health and building self esteem. What makes Waterpolo special among other sports?

  1. For a full contact sport, waterpolo is extremely safe.  Broken bones, knee, ankle and other impact driven injuries are rare.  For example, in the whole league during the 2011 season, no concussions were recorded during a university study. Speaking with athletic trainers, this could possibly be due to players being connected to the water instead of land.  Fluidity vs. unforgiving hard ground.
  2. Sports Illustrated ranks waterpolo second (only to ice hockey) as the sport requiring thehighest level of physical conditioning.  If you play waterpolo, you join the elite of the elite of athletes in the world in terms of conditioning.
  3. Waterpolo not only helps with physical conditioning but it also develops your basic eye hand coordination.
  4. Waterpolo is a team sport.  Your skills at communicating and working with teammates will be enhanced and developed.  Communication is tough for any team sport, waterpolo takes it a step further with the addition of water to the field of play.
  5. The list goes on...if you've read this far, I challenge you to try it out!  Don't be intimidated or discouraged because of the work involved.  Take the challenge and compare...you won't work this hard playing the mainstream sports, and you won't end up healthy and in as great of shape either....or with the kind of life long friends you will meet either.
